I got this in an e-mail today. A good reminder… No one gets their way 100% of the time and like children we can not throw tantrums or start a riot every time we don’t get our own way. There is a way to do things peacefully and the peaceful way usually gets the most positive notice in the long run. If as adults … Read More Good Reminder….
The USA celebrates Thanksgiving today… a day that originated when the pilgrims’ and the Indians put aside their differences to celebrate together and focus on the things they shared. Today I challenge us to focus on the positive, the good, and the things we have in common and to be grateful to celebrate those things. Today I am thankful for many things and am … Read More Happy Thanksgiving (Thankful day)
Since I didn’t have time on Friday to post I wanted to today. A rainbow can remind us of many things… the promise from God, hope, beauty, love, and more…. But today I wanted to use it to thank anyone who has served in the United states Military. Without their sacrifice, honor, bravery, and love of this country I believe we would not be … Read More Belated Veterans Day
Do you remember where you were (if you are old enough) on 9-11 when you heard the words – America is under attack. The moment- the emotions you felt? Did you watch the twin towers fall? Do you remember the sadness that followed? Today I talked to many people we could all remember the moment, what we heard, saw, and what happened after in … Read More Do you remember…

Why not see the beauty? In our recent 3 feet of snow I could have seen many negatives and at times I think the biggest … Read More Best Part of Snow
Today in the USA is Veterans Day. As I watched some TV today there were lots of programs and shows honoring veterans. But as I watched them it struck me how they seemed to skim over the real “honoring” part. Some shows did a great job, while others said a short thank you and moved on. I want to try to make up a … Read More Happy Veterans Day!
Our little piece of God’s land had some nice weather today and earlier this week. It was nice enough that the dogs laid in the yard and not in the shade of the porch. Baxter kept trying not to look at me when I was walking around checking on the chickens and snapping shots of him. He used to pose for me, but anymore … Read More Beauty Filled Day
I found a Bible verse the other day that was very encouraging and I thought I would share it with you today: 2 Samuel 22:31 – As for God, his way is perfect, the word of the Lord proves true, he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. I hope it encourages you today and helps you get though the end of your … Read More Encourage
We have had some beautiful sunsets lately. The sun has had so many colors and the flow is like an artist painting on a canvas. I like to think of them as a reminder God is still with me. Life continues to be tough and it doesn’t see a day goes by without a real trial. Some days it wears on me and then … Read More Gods sunset
